According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Green Bay Packers will be kicking off against the Dallas Cowboys at 4:30 ET on Sunday. Per Matt Schneidman of The Athletic, the game will be on FOX and will feature the channel’s A team announcers, including Kevin Burkhardt, Greg Olsen, Erin Andrews and Tom Rinaldi.

This will be just the second time that former Packers head coach Mike McCarthy, who won Super Bowl XLV in Green Bay, will face off against his former team. The first time the two sides faced each other was last season, when the Packers beat the Cowboys 31-28 in overtime at Lambeau Field.

Green Bay has never lost at AT&T Stadium, including that very Super Bowl victory that McCarthy led the Packers to. Since that stadium opened, the Packers have won four straight road games against the Cowboys — including a playoff game back in the 2016 season.

UPDATE: Here is the full schedule of games for next weekend, as announced and finalized by the league:

Whoever wins on Sunday Night Football in Week 18 will determine the remaining two playoff games. The Peacock exclusive game on Saturday night features the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the sixth seed in the AFC, which is the Miami Dolphins after their loss to the Bills on Sunday night. That result dropped the Pittsburgh Steelers to the 7th seed, sending them to Buffalo in Sunday’s early game.
